April 20, 2009

So why not turn to other state names when it comes to naming your deli/grocery/bodega? Kentucky isn’t all that far from New York. Or perhaps the owners of this Avenue D establishment were trying to make a point about how much distance lies between their store and the center of Manhattan.


Calling your shop the Alaska Food Market at least implies that the beer and soda will always be ice-cold. It’s in Chelsea on lower Ninth Avenue.
